Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Smith's resignation sought 4Good old Smithy' cries die down in Rhodesia IAN SMITH SALISBURY (Heuler) Rho- desian Prime Minister Ian SmiUi Is finding that cries of "good old Smithy" from the country's ruling white minority are turning into open calls for his resignation. While the fate of the Anglo- Rhodesian settlement t e r m s proposed last November still hangs in the balance, the opln- Report best seller EDMONTON (CP) The re- port of the commission on edu- cational planning, headed hy Dr. W. H. Worth, mil be re- leased about mid-June and the provincial government expects it to be a best seller. Education Minister Lou Hynd- man said in the legislature preparations are under way to ensure that the report receives the widest possible distribution Would make fur coats out of dogs PRETORIA, South Africa (Reuter) Van de Sandt de Villiere Emit, who caused an uproar recently by his plans to make fur conUs out of Hog pelts, .said loday he is consi- dering exporting dogs for daughter to avoid proposed legislation. The government has prom- Ised legislation banning the slaughter of dogs for commer- cial purposes. "If the government does pass the legislation, then I will simply do as I have the dogs out- side South Alrica, and then bring the skins Smit said. There is still opposition to the plan, however. He said a Pretoria businessman had of- fered him to drop the echeme. "But I mil go he said- and that citizens are made aware of Its significance. Copies will be sent to all pub- lic libraries and to associations whose members might not oth- erwise have access. The report will also be avail- able through direct orders to the Queen's Printer in Edmon- ton and through major book and department stores In the province. S5 PRICE TAG He said the report will cost to help recover the expense of production. The price is be- ing kept low because the gov- ernment believes that every cit- izen who is concerned about the future of education will want to have a copy of (he report. The commission was set up two years ago to assess Alber- ta's educational needs by the year 2000. Mr. Ilyndman said the gov- ernment intends to discuss edu- cation, and the Worth report in particular, when the legislature convenes in the fall. STEAL SACKED SWORD STIRLING, Scotland (AP) A sword that legend says struck terror into the hearts of English soldiers nearly seven centuries ago was stolen Wednesday for the second time from the na- tional Wallace Monument in Stirling. The Scottish hero, Sir William Wallace, was reputed to have wielded the six-foot sword when his army cut down the English at the "Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. Scottish students stole he sword 36 years ago. It was found a few months later at the bottom of a well. Ion of whites here is hardening against the settlement and the way chosen to test the accepta- bility of the proposals in Rhode- sia. A British offiical commission headed by former high court judge Lord Pearce spent two months here sounding out opin- ions among (lie country's five million blacks and whites. The verdict of the Pearce commission, which com- pleted its work in March, is anxiously awaited. Much of the disenchantment being expressed by White Rho- deslans against the Smith re- gime stems from the long, drawn out nature of the settle- ment negotiations and a grow- ing feeling that the whites will not do as well out of the agree- ment as they had thought. Many of them initially sup- ported a settlement of the con- Highway contracts awarded EDMONTON (CP) Con- tracts totalling more than Sl-2 million were awareded Wed- nesday by the department of highways and' transport for grading and paving of high- ways in the Edmonton area. A contract totalling S611.027 was awarded to Stahcli Con- struction Co. Lid. of Winter- burn for grading 24 miles o[ road south of Willow Creek to north of Lafond Creek, about 70 miles east of Edmonton Graham Brothers Contract- ing of Strome and Simmons Contractors Ltd. of Fort Sas- katchewan were awarded a contract for grading eight miles of secondary road near the Edmonton city limits. Included in the contract was grading of four miles of sec- ondary road near Villeneuve. A contract was awarded to M. E. L.

What turned many of them against Smith was the realiza- tion that the complex process of testing whether Rhodeslans wanted the key pre-condition set by the Britisl the "Africai majority a chance to Bay a vo- ciferous "No." The long delay between Smith and British Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home signing the tentative agreement last November and the Peaice com- mission ending its work gave right-wingers time to spread the idea that the setlement's terms would lead rapidly to African majority rule. After years of not being taken seriously, the extreme right has organized iLsell inlo Ihe United Front party and pledged to en- sure that the interests of white Rhodesians remain paramount Its meetings draw packed au diences, in contrast to those of the liberal and multi-racial Centre party, the other main op- ponent of Smith's Rhodesian Front. Given a strong leader, the United Front could seriously llireaten the Rhodesian Front's present monopoly on the 50 Eu- ropean seats in the Salisbury Parliament. There now are only 16 African seats in the 66-seat assembly. Smith, now In his ninth year of office, has reason to fear the threat from the extreme right. His own party came to power in 1962 as a result of a white back- lash against the liberal policies included framing the 1961 con- stitution which granted the Afri- cans significant political ad- vancement. Both the extreme right party and the liberal Centre party have challenged the government to hold an early election on the settlement issue, apparently in the hope of taking advantage of the situation to pick up a few seats. But the prime minister, who is not required to hold an elec- tion until 1975, has said on sev- eral occasions that there is no chance of an early election and no need for one.

Sir Winston distrusted former French leader LONDON (Reuter) Winston Churchill distrusted Charles de Gaulle in 1945 ironi- cally, he regarded the anti-Com- munist French leader as being to eager to reach agreements with the Soviet Union. And United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt also had his doubts about de Gaulle's in- tentions and was reluctant to give him authority, says a his- lory of British foreign policy during the Second World War. The book also quotes Church- ill, the war-time British prime minister, as saying in 1945 that de Gaulle was "the greatest ob- stacle the Allies had to face in making good relations France and the Western democ- racies." Two chapters of the third vol- ume of this history of the Sec- ond World War are concerned with Anglo-Franco-American re- lations. The author of the work, published by the British govern- ment's stationery office, is the British historian Sir Llewellyn Woodward. REFERRED TO TREATY Churchill's remark about de Gaulle was made in the context of the failure of proposals for the opening of negotiations on a n Anglo-French friendship treaty. The British leader argued in favor of delay, while the French insisted upon work- ing out a prior general settle- ment of outstanding questions. In a long memo to Anthony Eden (now Lord the then foreign secretary, Churchill asked why Duff Cooper, the British ambassador to France, mentioned to de Gaulle the pos- sibility of an Anglo-French pact when the British had decided not to bring up the matter im- mediately. Shortly before this, both Brit- ain and France had concluded separate friendship treaties with the Soviet Union. Before concluding its treaty with Rus- sia, the French government had let the British foreign office know that it intended to suggest an Anglo-French treaty on simi- lar lines. But it wanted first to reach agreement on a number of subjects relating to the future of post-war Germany and the Middle East. ACTED TOO QUICKLY Churchill, in his memo to Eden, wrote: "It crosses my mind that de Gaulle rushed precipitously into the arms of Russia, and has been, lor the last two years, ready to play Russia off against Great Britain, but that, after making an alliance with them, he has been somewhat disap- pointed with the result. In trying to sell us across the counter, he has been rebuffed and he now talks of the 'new menace.' Arctic spills inevitable say Montana ns HOUSTON'. Tex.

MAC OFFICE BLASTED TEHRAN, Iran (AP) The Tehran office of (lie British Overseas Airways Corp. was shattered hy a bomb explosion early Thursday. No ono was hurl. The blast dnmapod the fa- cado ol the office and smashed surrounding windows. "Why can you not give liim (Duff Cooper) clear instructions that he is not to press for any engagements wifli France? When France comes, as she will do in due course, and stronger than she is now, all these mat- ters can be raised and seltled in an agreeable manner. We are in no hurry about any Anglo- French agreement. If we offer it, we shall be snubbed and blackmailed. If we wait, it will be a happy and permanent union." The third volume shows that Roosevelt totally distrusted de Gaulle's intentions, refused to agree in advance of the Nor- mandy invasion that the civil administration of liberated France (outside the area of mil- itary operations) should be handed over to de Gaulle's French national committee as the provisional government of France.
